This review is based on the 3 chapters that have been released so far...
[ Story 7/10 ] - [ Character 8/10 ]
Based in samurai times a gang of assassins get a new member. The new guy is young, sharp, cocky and gives the other members a run for their money. The new guy clings to a quiet, mysterious existing member and ends up staying with him and so the story progresses...
The story is kinda hollow though. These guys kill people because of given orders from their boss (kinda unknown at this point) and within the first 3 chapters there is only one scene of them in action. The rest of the story, so far, is dialogue and character building. So really the story focuses around the new guy and the guy he is clinging too and how their relationship grows stronger.
The Yaoi is very light at this stage. There are a few suggested scenes but nothing happens. Really the good thing about this manga is the relationship that starts to blossom from these 2 thugs…making you giggle & blush all the way.
[ Art 9/10 ]
The art work is great and doesn't leave you disappointed in the eye candy department (as the new guy sleeps naked all the time haha). Plus hot guys with swords…who would be disappointed? :P
I'm a huge fan of Kou Yoneda and own many of her works and i must have read everything to date! I seriously love her art/plots.
[ Enjoyment 8/10 ] - [ Overall 8/10 ]
If you want to read a manga with good drawings, BL suggested events and hot guys with swords, then you won't be disappointed.
Even though it's only 3 chapters - to date - i must say I’m very entertained so far and am waiting for more!
PS: i hope she continues this manga (and her many others). Would be a real shame if this gets dropped :( read more
